Fresh from its triumph over the dark forces of Hollywood in their attempt to topple the state by shaking the hand of a blind man, the people's democratic dictatorship has now set its sights, once again, on Ni Yulan, already crippled by earlier police beatings.

Apparently the leaders have not been reading books about how China is destined to take over the world. They seem extraordinarily unconfident and fearful.
